Does humidity affect fire building

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi I have had a tough day with my fire. I am using an offset char broil smoker I used the minion method of lighting. I have never had a problem before keeping temp up the only difference seems to be a very humid day here in Trenton Ontario Canada

Perhaps, if there is very little air movement a small charcoal fire may be difficult to maintain. Get a small fan and place it in front of the air intakes to get some air flow.

Yes most definitely. Harder to maintain your fire on a humid or rainy day.

Ditto, both affect it....especially a rainy day.   It takes more air to offset the humidity.
